Re: Engine size

Front mount carbs are quite nice. Easy to get at them when the engine is mounted in the plane .. and makes the engine narrower than side mounted carbs. Rear mounted carbs are OK too, but harder to see what is going on if you have any problems. You also will not likely need the long stand offs that are required for rear mounted carb engines. You can probably get at the choke without any linkages too. MVVS and OS use front mounted carbs as well, on their small, ( under 50cc ) gas engines.

Re: Engine size

Front mounted carbs also give the engine cooler air. Hands down agree with bobrieb. Cooler air, cooler engine, and more fuel efficient with more power. Proven fact. Thats why we throw ice on our drag car.
